    Re: Why is aperture backwards??

    Substitute a 1 for the f and it will all make sense.

    f/2 1/2

    f/4 1/4

    f/5.6 1/5.6

    f/8 1/8

    Re: Chamonix C45F-2 vs. C45H-1

    Here's my comment from the other thread. I have the 45H-1 for about a year. It was recommended to me by Chamonix over the F2 since I don't hike and don't need to fold the whole camera up every time I...

    Re: Focusing aids for Chamonix 4x5 cameras

    I started 4x5 photography last year and bought a Chamonix 45H-1. I don't like viewing upside down. So I bought the reflex viewfinder. It works better on long lenses, such as my 300mm. It's hard to...
  8. Re: Lens storage and carry - stupid but practical question

    I've done the same but even with the reflex viewer, it's hard to see the sides the wider the lens. The reflex viewer works much better with a 300mm though. The other problem is with both, you can't...

    How do you handle filters with your 105mm? Which filters and what do you do? I have a 90mm Nikkor but the Schneider center filter is 105mm.
